Although he rested World Cup champion Lionel Messi for the match played at northern side Lens’ home stadium, PSG coach Christophe Galtier kept his word and selected a strong team that included World Cup top scorer Mbappé and Neymar.

Galtier was increasingly frustrated with his underperforming squad as Mbappé gave PSG the lead in the 29th minute after a cross from Nuno Mendes, gave PSG a record 14-time cup victory.

Before Mbappé scored with a lob and a deft chipped finish, Neymar scored PSG’s second goal with a deft attempt in the 33rd minute to the loud jeers of the fans.
